AIDS Memorial Grove Volunteer Day
July 16, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join the United Democratic Club as we volunteer our time to maintain the National AIDS Memorial Grove, a dedicated space in Golden Gate Park where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, hope, and remember.
We will be helping with basic gardening activities: clearing weeds and debris, mulching and hauling topsoil, planting new trees and shrubs, and other related activities within the Grove.
- Breakfast: 8:30am-9am
- Gardening: 9am-12:30pm
- Lunch: 12:30pm
What You Will Need To Know As a Volunteer:
Gloves and tools are provided, although many volunteers bring their own gloves. We suggest that you wear sturdy shoes and bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat or cap. No open toe shoes will be permitted. Please wear sturdy clothing (jeans and long-sleeved shirts are suggested) as we have discovered a few areas where poison oak is growing. Please advise your group of this fact; additionally, all volunteers are briefed on how to avoid coming into contact with the plant. All participants under the age of 18 must have a consent form signed by a parent/guardian prior to working at the Grove. Click Here to Download the required Workday Release Form to complete and sign ahead of time.pdf, or they will be available on-site on the morning of the Community Volunteer Workday.
If there are questionable weather conditions, call the NAMG office by 7:30 a.m. on your scheduled Community Volunteer Workday for an official update based on current weather conditions. We look forward to a very productive and inspiring day.
